Data manager support
Lead Engineer: Bob Herlein
Project Manager: Duane Edgington
The goal of this project is to improve the quality, documentation and
support for the functionality provided by the DataManager software
subsystem of Tiburon, R/V Western Flyer, Ventana and
R/V Point Lobos.
DataManager is a fairly complex (20,000 line) software subsystem, about
eight years old, developed at MBARI to provide real-time network data
delivery services within the Tiburon/Western Flyer computer systems. The
software has been retrofitted onto Ventana /Point Lobos. DataManager is a
key subsystem within these vehicles and right in the middle of data
communication; problems within DataManager can bring operations to a halt.
Like the vehicles, DataManager is an asset that requires ongoing
maintenance and support.
